that he has in john kerry and susan rice. and i do think he's got a little bit of a dilemma, but i know there are those close to the president that are telling him, enough of this. both rice and kerry are sort of hanging in the wind, particularly rice. fish or cut bait and do it soon. i've got to think we're going to see it in the next 48 to 72 hours. >> chuck, we are talking about the fiscal cliff here and basically, i mean, i know next to nothing about the fiscal cliff or the negotiations that are going on. is your sense that there's more going on behind the scenes than what we talk about or what's in the papers? >> you know, i love -- no. there's not. i mean -- >> you mean we're right? >> no, it's one of those -- it's amazing. i think we all assume oh, there's got to be real stuff going on. this is just -- and maybe this is an elaborate ploy, right, that the president and boehner said okay, we're going to do all this and then magically we'll bring it all together as everybody feels everything's going to heck in a handbasket. but no, there's not a lot going on sort of behind the scene
will be the next secretary of state after an introduction from john kerry. >> senator mccain. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> kerry stepped up again after mccain but refused to bite on that one. >> thank you very much, mr. president. this is what happens when you get two losers up here, folks. >> that was a good line. kerry has been careful to stay clear of the public speculation about whom the president will actually pick to replace hillary clinton. >>> also, ads governor jan brewer, she's a heavyweight, in a comment about global warming. she doesn't think it's man made, but her own explanation for climate change is rather lacking. here is what she told a local reporter. >> everybody has an opinion on it, you know, and i probably don't believe it's manmade. i believe that, you know, weather and certain elements are controlled maybe by different things. >> another pathetic comment by an enemy of science. >>> up next, it sure looks like hillary clinton is running for president. we have the latest signs next. >>> and you're watching "hardball," the place for politics.

. kennedy tied the not saturday in california. >>> things may be tense between senator mccain and john kerry but they were able to liten the mood as mccain joked by kerry's nomination to an obama cabinet. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> you didn't hear the joke. he called him mr. secretary. it didn't take long for kerry to give as good as he got. >> tnk you very much mr. president. this is what happens when you get too losers. >> you don't see that very often. that's your morning ditch of "scrambled politics." >> along with continuing worry about the fiscal cliff, stocks fell monday after disappointing manufacturing numbers which sh rufr shrunk to the lowest levels in three years. shopaholics drop an average of $263 a month in washington, d.c. that's more than anywhere else in the country. >>> andrew zimmer, the host of bizarre foods on the travel channel is blasting yelp.com. he says reviews of restaurants and other businesses should be left to the pros. he claims too many people abuse the site and try to blackmail the merchants they're commenting on. >>> trial began monday in ita
. this is a chance to have a new shop. >> susan rice has been named as a possible replacement. john kerry of massachusetts. what are their records on climate change? the big controversy around susan rice is in her investment of $600,000 in transcanada, which is the oil pipeline company building the keystone xl pipeline from the alberta tar sands to the gulf of mexico. >> which ever of them become secretary of state -- although senator kerry has certainly been active on climate change. we hope that the new secretary of state changes the policy that brought the u.s. to the point where it is putting an emissions reduction commission on the table here at the international negotiations without explaining how they will get to it. we hope that we will not have comments from the negotiators where they say, in 2015, we will be negotiating an agreement will apply in 2020. scientists tell us right now that every year counts. we cannot wait until 2025 to start cutting emissions. we hope that whoever is our new secretary of state, that we see a change in these policies. as long as the u.s. does with i
question if he were to name john kerry, for example, the senator from massachusetts as his secretary of state, he would be confirmed presumably, would that open the door for a republican to be the next senator though from massachusetts? i'm speaking about the current senator, the outgoing senator scott brown who's still pretty popular there. >> he is popular. that's a great point. i know he was just defeated, but he is a formidable political talent. i honestly have no idea if that's playing a role in these deliberations. clearly john kerry is qualified to be the secretary of state as well. my best guess is it's exactly what ari was saying which is the president is asking who is most in sync with my foreign policy? ambassador rice is someone who helped form late the obama foreign policy. i think senator kerry would too. democrats are now in a position where we have an embarrassment of riches. i really hope they don't start worrying about this or that political matter. in democrats can't win elections in massachusetts, there's something fundamentally wrong with what we're doing. >> he
. >> what about john kerry? you met with john kerry. >> i also met with susan rice. i've known john kerry for many years. >> what were those meetings like? >> good. thorough, deep. yeah. someone who has been ob this issue for a long period of time. he visited the region quite often. >> you think kerry would make a good secretary of state? >> he's been -- whatever it is he did. and i have reason to believe that he would definitely perform exceptionally well in that position. >> speaking of senators, there are some people on capitol hill who say one of their major concerns is whether now with this new status you will go to the international criminal court and, for example, try to cite israel for war crimes. can you say categorically you won't do that? >> what i can say is i think it really is very important to use what happened yesterday as a building block toward doing that which susan rice was talking about yesterday. yes, by virtue of putting a button it's not going to happen. but it's the same forum that have given israel that birth certificate some 65 years ago. and that's exactly what
it could be john kerry. also secretary of defense they say they are trying to name here in the next couple of weeks. the question is regarding susan rice. some have brought up in the past couple of days that maybe benghazi isn't the only blemish on her record. maybe what happened on september 11st, actually reflects something that happened earlier on in her career. going back to 1998 when there were those terror bombings in kenya, and tanzania that killed more than 200 people. a dozen americans. some say susan rice failed to protect our embassies similar to what happened in 1998. >> exact same story repeated. they had the warnings. they had information that al qaeda had cells in these cities and they didn't do anything about it as far as increasing the security on these buildings and, once again, the same situation as what we saw back on september 11th. >> this came on the heels of the coal bombings. the family member was on hannity speaking about this going back to 1998. take a listen. >> what we do now is that as early as 1996, our intelligence community had live active cells al qaeda ce

. >> john kerry has been very active in this issue. i think it will require a presidential push to convince a few. i think it's important that we move forward with that. just one additional thing. as i mentioned, and as we know, the world is so rapidly changing. the unpredictability of the world is the one thing but i think we would all agree on. look at the world, as i mentioned last night, the first time we convened here and look at it today. what will it be like four years from now darks we don't know. we have no real idea. anyone who predicted the world four years ago would like -- would be like this today, i would like to meet year. -- i would like to meet yuo. we need common principles of international behavior. we have to stick to those principles. all of us, at least during the cold war, we lived in a very predictable world. we did. we knew the divisions and capabilities. we do not know what's going to happen. i don't know what will happen in china. i tell believe that 1.3 billion people are going to be satisfied forever under the present regime in which they live. it seems to me it
